The FBI is on Line 2 - The Good, Bad, and Reasonably Attractive Parts of Payments

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 10, 2019 - Argos Risk®, an industry leader of Third-Party Risk Intelligence (TPRI) solutions, today announced Argos Risk’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Kevin Sasser, will present with Secura Risk Management Founder, Terri Sands, at the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) Conference on October 21st.

AFP 2019, where nearly 7,000 senior-level treasury and corporate finance professionals gather, will hold its premier conference in Boston, Massachusetts October 20th-23rd. This conference provides a platform to hear thought-provoking presenters, gain practical knowledge by attending educational sessions, network, meet industry experts, and discover beneficial innovative solutions.

“We are truly looking forward to presenting ‘The FBI is on Line 2 – The Good, The Bad, and The Reasonably Attractive Parts of Payments’ with Ms. Sands. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to work side-by-side with one of our Affiliate partners and share real-life stories,” said Sasser. He added, “As a former Payments executive, this educational session allows us to uniquely represent both sides of the struggle to drive new growth while protecting the institution. Referencing events from industry front line, we will share how mismanaged risk mitigation practices can affect customers, management, and shareholders alike and why it is imperative for an organization to define and embrace their risk appetite.”

Sands, the Founder of Secura Risk Management, former President of the Georgia ACH Association and State Bank & Trust’s former Director of Payments Risk Management and Financial Investigative Unit, states “This session, ‘The FBI is on Line 2’ will illustrate the delicate balancing act between growing revenue, meeting the needs of the customer and managing third-party risks and vulnerabilities. It is designed to provide you best practices for securing and enhancing your third-party risk management program and to be able to prove to regulators that what you think happens actually does.”

“Today, third-party risk management is about knowing all parties involved and having supporting documentation to prove safe and sound business practices. It is what you think, what you know and what you can prove,” added Sands.
